It's Boycott China month

From Sept.1 - Oct.1, many North Americans (including myself) will be attempting to boycott products made in China. Yes, it's darn near impossible, but every effort counts. Have at it.

And ask (nay, pressure and demand!) retailers to sell fewer (or none at all) goods made in China. Last July, I was shopping in Walmart and saw some large colorful plastic tote bins. Assuming they were made in China, I decided not to buy any, but had a closer look anyway. They were made in Israel! So I bought two, but now I wish I'd bought five, and thanked the manager (though I realize he probably doesn't make any of the buying decisions). Still, if you don't speak up, who will?
